User's Guide - How to get the best from your MSC session
1. Log in to the MSC database using one of the two log in computers.
You will need to know:
(a) your student number,
(b) your programme of study e.g. Science, Engineering etc,
(c) your module code for which you seek help e.g MEEN10030 Mechanics for Engineers.
2. Take a ticket from the right hand side of the ticket book.
3. Take a seat and prepare your question for the tutor; this may mean opening Blackboard on your laptop or
taking out your physical notes.
4. Listen for the tutor to call your ticket number and raise your hand when it's called.
5. While you are waiting for the tutor to see you use this time to articulate exactly what it is you are having an issue with
and perhaps try Googling it or checking out the video or sheet resources in the MSC.
